It’s always tough taking overs when the Mets and Padres are on the board. Both are two of the worst teams in baseball at producing runs. But today should be a prime opportunity to take advantage of a low run line. The Padres send Ian Kennedy to the mound and the Mets send Dice K.

The line is just 7 at -105. Dice K has actually shown some promise in his few starts out of the bullpen. But I’m not convinced that he is ready to detonate a horrific game. We saw all too often what his true value is as a pitcher last season.

Ian Kennedy has been a bright spot for the Padres, but he is another pitcher that tends to slide as the season wanes.

Easy winners are few and far between. Most bets you’ll have to sweat out into the later innings. Todays will be no different. Maybe if this line was 7.5 or 8 I would have stayed away.

But 7, leaves you the opportunity to push. I fully expect both pitchers to give up a minimum of three runs. That leaves the door open safely for at least a push. Both bullpens are solid but I’d take my chances on a sound half inning from either team late.
